    About The Middle Class Handbook

     

    The Middle Class Handbook is written under the auspices of a London-based creative agency called Not Actual Size – although since it began in 2009, it has taken on a certain life of its own, with regular contributions from people who are not directly connected with the company.

    The blog is for people interested in the stuff the modern British middle classes say, do and buy. We discuss the details, ponder the changes and, when necessary, settle questions of etiquette. On the whole we think it is the small things that people do and say that reveal the most, and feel that this is proved by long and passionate debates about important subjects such as museli, wine brands and how much one should tip a pizza delivery person. Occasionally we and our readers are troubled by today’s rising tides of bad taste, and we share advice for living life in a dignified British manner while coping with such modern distractions as trash television and the expression “totes amaze”.
